A new series of pictogram-based infographics shows some cultural and social differences between man’s and woman’s thinking/behavior

The infographic posters of “Man Meets Woman” make accurate and sometimes humorous comparisons between the two genders. The images underscore important social elements like the perception of self, expression of opinions and mood. They also compare a few less-serious elements like behavior before a party or how to buy a screw. Yang Liu says she is often questioned about her ways of gathering such content and whether she used interviews, research or theories. “The fact is that each single illustration is my very personal experience in the past 13-17 years, and this work was made as a documentation of my own life,” she said.
